I didn't try AMS, BUT i used US Career Institute for medical coding and claims specialist (same thing) online. I am still in it. Almost finished. I talked to a private doctor's office and they said u.s.c.i's certification meets their criteria. So, when Im finished I can work there. When you received your school information, you should have received all of the school's certifications. They should have sent it the mail. You can always email your school or phone them and ask if they are.
